The former Chelsea, Manchester United and Rangers midfielder revealed on Sky Sports on Thursday that he has been approached by Villa manager Tim Sherwood, and that he has accepted the invitation.
Wilkins is a well-respected figure in the footballing community, and he is certainly going to be a good ‘signing’ for Villa.

Villa boss Sherwood is an ambitious young manager, and working with Wilkins is only going to make him better.
Following the news, Villa supporters took to Twitter to have their say.
